A Woman, A Part
Director: Elisabeth Subrin
A Woman, A Part, Elisabeth Subrin, 2016
Synopsis: Workaholic actress Anna Baskin (Maggie Siff), 44, abruptly extricates herself from a successful but mind-numbing TV role, returning to her past life in New York to reinvent herself. But despite the desire for transformation, she cannot find herself outside of her career. When an upsetting personal betrayal unexpectedly leads to the role of her life, she must confront the reality of her past relationships to clear a path forward.
Director Bio: Elisabeth Subrin is a New York-based filmmaker, screenwriter, and visual artist who creates conceptually driven projects in film, video, photography and installation. Working across experimental and narrative forms, her projects seek intersections between history and subjectivity, investigating the nature and poetics of psychological "disorder," the legacy of feminism, and the impact of recent social and political history on contemporary life and consciousness.
Doors open at 6:00 pm
Introduction and Screening at 6:30 pm
